Support Kim Lauber

My name is Kim Lauber. I am married to Bruce Lauber and we are from Archbold, Ohio. My story begins early this year when I began experiencing some unusual health issues. I visited numerous doctors and underwent a series of tests. It was determined that I did indeed have something very serious going on as I learned that I had cancer of the uterus. Surgery was going to be required to remove it immediately.

I didn’t have much time to prepare myself for surgery as doctors put me on a fast track to have the cancer removed. I am very thankful for a successful surgery. The good Lord blessed me with a good report and the doctors have told me that I am going to be healthy again! I am now on the road to recovery and doing well!

I had heard so many good reports from others that had experienced health issues and spent time at Sara’s Garden, both before and after surgical procedures. With the encouragement of family and friends, I have decided to begin this journey of healing with the help of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Sara’s Garden.

In 1931 Otto Warburg won a Nobel prize for discovering that oxygen was an enemy of the cancer cell – it kills them. Cancer cells thrive in environments where oxygen is depleted. Since that time many cancer experts have looked for ways of delivering oxygen to cancerous tissue in the hope of killing the cancer cells and restoring the tissue to its normal state. HBOT is just such a process.

Inside a pressurized chamber the body begins to receive a healing dose of oxygen through the body’s fluids and plasma even if the blood vessel system to the needed tissue is compromised. When oxygen dissolves in the blood stream, it travels wherever the blood travels, effectively saturating all tissues. The delivery of oxygen using pressure does not require the use of red blood cells. As pressure increases, more oxygen is pushed into the cells.

Additionally, HBOT acts as an anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal agent. It also decreases inflammation and swelling, increases energy, and increases the body’s white blood cell activity, boosting the immune system and promoting healing. It will also change the pH level of my body, making it more basic and less acidic. Cancer thrives in an acidic environment. The benefit for me is that HBOT will help my body recover from surgery all while helping it maintain an environment that cancer does not do well in.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for my situation is only $150 per treatment at Sara’s Garden (as opposed to $1,500-2,500 per treatment at a hospital). Unfortunately, in the United States insurance companies do not recognize HBOT as being therapeutic for the treatment of cancer and post-surgical recovery and will therefore not cover the cost of the treatments even though it is widely recognized as a crucial tool in helping someone recover from the ravaging effects of cancer treatments (such as chemotherapy and radiation).

If you could assist us with the cost (or even just part of the cost) of a single $150 treatment it would help reduce our overall expenses greatly. 100% of the funds received will go into an account in my name and will be used for my treatments. Any contribution made would be considered a tax-deductible donation as Sara’s Garden is a 501(c)(3) non-profit facility. Checks can be made out to Sara’s Garden with my name on a sheet of paper accompanying the check. Please do not write my name directly on the check. You can also donate online via credit card by clicking on the DONATE NOW button below.

Thank-you for considering a donation to help us with the cost of this wonderful opportunity at continued healing. We feel so blessed to have this resource in our own backyard!
